Some animations impress by the way they are made. Some are extremely funny. Others have a great story. This animation is pretty strong on all points, but doesn't stick out in any. It's a relaxed watch. The music is good, it has a nice animations style (reminding me of Dudok de Wit's work but a little rougher) a funny and good storyline. It's also not that remarkable in any way. I would have expected a little more of a Oscar winner. Something a little extra, to set it apart from other animations, but nothing really did.
Overall good, a 7/10, but not like previous Oscar winners like Das Rad, Ryan or For the birds. Still it's enjoyable and worth the watch. However, I doubt if it deserved the Oscar, in my own opinion.
